Panic at Vonovia and Plug Power - Barrick Gold and Tocvan Ventures shine
Concrete gold? Real estate stocks are currently in an absolute panic. The share of Germany's industry leader Vonovia recovered somewhat yesterday, but an end to the downward slide is not in sight. Analysts are also skeptical. The range of price targets is broad, and there is already speculation about an (emergency) capital increase. So buy or sell? The Plug Power share could also use some buying. From a chart perspective, the situation is critical. Fuel cells for smaller forklifts are now being offered. The situation is different at Barrick Gold. The group's share is about to break out to the upside. Price targets for gold of USD 3,000 provide for a good mood. Tocvan Ventures should also benefit from this. The gold and silver explorer published news about its project in Mexico yesterday, and the stock is waking from its slumber - there appears to be further air to the upside.Read

Nel ASA and Varta continue to decline: dynaCERT convinces analysts during an on-site visit
Being active in a market of the future is no guarantee for success. Shareholders of Varta had to painfully realize this in recent months. The German battery group has indeed reached an agreement with banks on restructuring. However, there can be no talk of a liberating blow. According to analysts, the share could continue to slide. Experts are also somewhat cautious about Nel ASA. The hydrogen specialist's chart does not look rosy either. In contrast, dynaCERT could be due for a revaluation in the current year. Experts believe the Greentech company has set the course for a commercial breakthrough in 2023.Read

Gold to USD 3,000? Barrick Gold and Desert Gold profit. What is going on at Vonovia?
Will the price of gold rise to USD 3,000 per ounce before the end of the year? That is what investment professional Leigh Goehring thinks is possible. He is a managing director at Goehring & Rozencwajg, manages a commodity fund, among other things, and expects a "decade of inflation." If the forecast comes true, gold stocks will at least be an attractive portfolio addition. In addition to industry heavyweights like Barrick Gold, explorers can be worthwhile as leverage to the gold price. One such explorer is Desert Gold. The share of the Canadian company reacted yesterday with a price jump of over 10% to a project update. In contrast, the outlook for "concrete gold" remains challenging. Vonovia, for example, was once again downgraded by analysts despite the significant share price losses of recent months. At the same time, there are also positive comments.Read

Buffett adds to oil stocks: Shell, Saturn Oil + Gas, BYD
Star investor Warren Buffett has long been a fan of oil stocks. So it is no surprise that he is taking advantage of the current weak oil price to add to his favourite stock (after Apple): Occidental Petroleum. Berkshire Hathaway now holds around 23% of the US oil producer. Those looking to take advantage of the low oil price opportunity should also look at Shell and Saturn Oil & Gas. Numerous analysts recommend Shell and Saturn Oil & Gas is on its way to becoming a well-known producer after several spectacular takeovers. There is also news on BYD. Also a favourite of Buffett, but it is currently in a difficult market environment. Here is what recent media reports suggest.Read

Takeover speculation at Defence Therapeutics! What are BioNTech, Morphosys, and Evotec doing?
Defence Therapeutics is one of the biotech high flyers of the past months. The share has more than doubled since October. And this could be just the beginning. Operationally, things are going well, a strong partner has been acquired, and experts are speculating about a takeover. And what are the German biotechs doing? At BioNTech, it will be exciting at the end of March, because the Mainz-based company needs new blockbusters. At Morphosys, analysts recently saw further downside potential. Will a new management board bring about a turnaround? Evotec also had little positive to report. However, an AI investment in the hype surrounding ChatGPT is making headlines.Read

BioNTech, Pfizer, Bayer and BioNxt Solutions on the biotech takeover merry-go-round
2023 could become the year of takeovers in the pharmaceutical and biotech sectors. This is what the experts at PwC expect. Thus, at the JP Morgan industry conference in San Francisco, not only were takeover candidates discussed but billion-dollar transactions were reported. One reason is the Inflation Reduction Act in the USA. This allows negotiations on drug prices. To prevent sales declines, Big Pharma must invest in new top sellers. And it is already doing so. The latest takeover rumor comes from BioNTech partner Pfizer. At BioNTech, the negative news currently outweighs the positive. Whether Bayer will take action with the boss or be taken over itself is not yet entirely clear. But there are also opportunities for investors in the smallcap sector. Take BioNxt Solutions, for example - the Canadian company with its operational focus in Germany recently secured new patents, and the share price has jumped.Read

Nel share slumps, a 60% chance with Bayer, Almonty Industries and BASF
The Nel share was one of the big daily losers yesterday. As a result, the upward trend has finally been broken, and analysts' opinions differ widely. Berenberg sees the BASF share as a hold after the publication of the quarterly figures. The price target is EUR 55. The figures are in line with expectations. However, the end of share buybacks and concerns about future competitiveness weigh on the stock. By contrast, analysts see up to 60% upside potential for Bayer. Almonty Industries is benefiting from the boom in electromobility and also defense spending. As the leading tungsten producer outside China, analysts suspect it could soon come to a bidding war.Read

BYD with share price jump and sales figures: What are American Lithium and Tocvan Ventures doing?
While the investor event at Tesla was eagerly awaited yesterday, the shares of competitor BYD were among the day's winners, with a price jump of over 5%. After the sell-off of the previous days, the share benefited, among other things, from good economic indicators in China. Operationally, there are also positive things to report. There is also good newsflow at Tocvan Ventures. The gold and silver explorer has completed a capital increase and presented promising drill results. The news flow should continue as the year progresses, and the share could celebrate a strong comeback. Investors are waiting for news at American Lithium. The recent sell-off seems to be over, and the stock is picking up again. When will the uranium IPO come?Read

Nel ASA, TUI and Alpina Holdings: Shares with up to 100% price potential?
The reporting season is in full swing. The 2022 figures are an opportunity for investors to review their investment decisions and, if necessary, reposition themselves for 2023. For one of our three companies, analysts see up to 100% upside potential but also a "sell". The figures from Nel ASA were awaited with great excitement. Since last year, hydrogen companies have been good for a surprise every time they open their books - unfortunately, more of a negative one lately. Nel has also seen its fair share of good and bad news, and the first analysts have spoken out. At TUI, analyst comments are rather negative. Analyst opinion: Better than feared, but not good enough. In contrast, Alpina Holdings offers a favorable valuation and a dividend yield of 3%. Yet 2022 was relatively quiet for the real estate company from Singapore. In the future, margins and earnings should rise again.Read
